Ceremonial Grade Matcha: It's rich in flavor and antioxidants. You can find them in grocery and online stores. If you can't find it, culinary-grade matcha is a good substitute, though slightly different in taste.
Warm Water: Helps dissolve the matcha powder, creating a lump-free base. Warm water is best to preserve matcha's delicate flavors and helps to make a delicious oat milk matcha latte.
Oat Milk: Adds a creamy texture and is excellent for those preferring plant-based milk.
Honey: You can choose any based on your preference for sweetness and flavor, like maple syrup, agave syrup, or brown sugar. Ice Cubes (for Iced Version): Perfect for a refreshing twist on hot days.

Start with the Matcha Mixture: Add ceremonial-grade matcha to a small bowl. Add warm water. Using a bamboo whisk, mix until smooth and lumps-free.
Froth the Oat Milk: Pour the milk into a suitable container. For a hot latte, gently warm the milk over medium heat without boiling it. Use a milk frother to whisk it until it's creamy and frothy. Don't have a frother? No worries! Put the milk in a mason jar, seal it tightly, and shake it well until it's nicely frothed.
Combine Matcha and Milk. Fill a glass with ice cubes. Next, carefully add your smooth matcha mixture. Then, if you like, sweeten it by stirring in some honey to taste. After that, gently pour the frothed oat milk over the matcha. Sit back and enjoy watching the beautiful green swirls form!
Serve and Enjoy: Your Oat Milk Matcha Latte is ready! Savor the creamy, frothy goodness.
Hot Oat Milk Matcha Latte: Perfect for chilly days! Warm the oat milk and froth it before pouring it into the glass. It's a cozy twist.
Vanilla Matcha Latte: Incorporate a dash of vanilla extract for a sweet, aromatic flavor. It's a comforting variation.
Matcha Chai Latte: Mix a bit of chai spice with your matcha for a spicy kick. It's a fusion of flavors that's sure to delight.
Different Sweeteners: Try honey, stevia, or coconut sugar instead of maple syrup for a new taste.
Type of Milk: Experiment with whole, cashew, or rice milk for different creamy textures and flavors.
💭 Top tips
Use Ceremonial Grade Matcha: Choose ceremonial grade over culinary grade matcha for the excellent flavor and color. It's a fine powder and dissolves better, giving you that vibrant green and a smoother taste.
Sift Your Matcha: To avoid lumps and ensure a smooth texture, sift your matcha powder through a fine mesh strainer before mixing.
Heat Milk Carefully: Heat your oat milk on medium heat when making a hot latte. Avoid boiling to maintain the milk's creamy texture and prevent skin from forming.
Froth for Creaminess: Use a milk frother for the best creamy texture. If you don't have one, shaking the milk in a Mason jar or vigorously whisking can be effective alternatives.
Sweeten to Taste: Personalize your latte by adding your sweetener of choice, like maple syrup, honey, or agave. Start with a small amount and adjust according to your preference.
Yes, you can store it in an airtight container in the refrigerator. It's best to enjoy a cool treat within a day to maintain freshness, especially on hot summer days.
A bamboo matcha whisk and a milk frother are highly recommended for best results. They help achieve a smooth matcha mixture and creamy foam. A mason jar can also be used for shaking the milk if you don't have a frother.
In an oat milk matcha latte recipe, coconut milk gives a subtly sweet and tropical twist. Soy milk brings a smooth, slightly nutty flavor, enhancing the overall taste. Almond milk adds a light, nutty essence and contributes to a somewhat thinner but equally delicious texture. Cashew milk introduces a rich, creamy texture with a subtly sweet and nutty flavor. On the other hand, whole milk provides a classic, full-bodied creaminess, enhancing the latte's richness and depth of flavor.
While a bamboo whisk is ideal for matcha, a regular small whisk can work in a pinch. Just ensure that you whisk vigorously for a smooth mixture.
The best part is its versatility. Serve it iced on hot summer days for a refreshing and energizing drink.
